WHITE GOLD, is far and away the most highly customized J-44 afloat. Her most recent owner took the original Johnstone J/44 design and gave her every speed advantage possible, including a fully retractable propulsion system; propeller, shaft and strut, to eliminate drag! In addition, the waterline was extended by several feet with reconstruction of a plumb bow on which the waterline is slightly concave to induce further lift to windward. White Gold received a custom deeper keel, re-designed and faired rudder, modified cockpit to include twin helms, complete new instrument pods, all new cockpit winch layout and an open transom. Her original J-44 aluminum spar was replaced with a carbon TP-52 fractional rig, which vastly increased her horsepower under sail. She also received mostly new instrumentation and will be delivered with a full complement of sails.
Headed down through the companionway, you have a full and spacious Galley to port including a double basin stainless steel sink, a large double refrigeration/freezer unit, ample cabinet and drawer space and great counter space. To starboard of the Galley is the Nav Station, seat facing forward. Aft of the Nav Station is a full aft cabin with a large double bed, storage space, seat and a shelf. Aft behind the Galley is a cabin that holds pipe berths for additional race crew accommodation or it could also be used ad a storage space while cruising. Moving forward in the boat is the spacious salon with 6'1'' headroom, matching port and starboard settees and pilot berths. The Forward bulkhead has two doors, one leading forward to the V berth and the other leading to the head on port.
